Morning Prayer

O God, come to my assistance,
O Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen

Let the whole world tell of God’s greatness.

Lord our God,
the whole world tells
the greatness
of your name.
Your glory reaches
yond the stars.

Even the babble of infants
clares your strength,
your power to halt
the enemy
and avenger.

I see your handiwork
in the heavens:
the moon and the stars
set in place.

What is humankind
you remember them,
the human race
that you
care for them?

You treat them like gods,
dressing them in glo
ry and splendor.
You give them charge of the earth,
laying all
at their feet:

cattle and sheep,
wild beast,
of the sky,
fish of the sea,
swimming creature.

Lord, our God,
whole world tells
the greatness
of your name.

READING: Revelations 21:5-6

The one who was seated on the throne said,
See, I am making all things new.” Also, he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Then he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life.

A new heaven and a new earth you prepare for us, O God. Let your love shine forth.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.
